The film was a hit [ [http://boxofficeindia.com/showProd.php?itemCat=177&catName=MTk3MQ= BoxOffice India.com ] ] and a star-making vehicle for Zeenat Aman, who played a westernized hippie, and won the Filmfare Best Supporting Actress Award, [ [http://deep750.googlepages.com/FilmfareAwards.pdf 1st Filmfare Awards 1953 ] ] , as well as the BFJA Award for Best Actress. [ [http://www.bfjaawards.com/archives/pictures/index31.htm 69th & 70th Annual Hero Honda BFJA Awards 2007 ] ] . The movie dealt with the decadence of the Hippie culture. It aimed to have an anti-drug message and also depicts some problems associated with Westernization such as divorce.

Asha Bhosle won Filmfare Best Female Playback Award for the song "Dum Maro Dum", which was a huge hit. The music of the film was composed by Rahul Dev Burman and the lyrics were written by Anand Bakshi.

The story for "Hare Rama Hare Krishna" actually came to Dev Anand's mind when he saw hippies and their fallen values in Kathmandu where he was on a visit after protests against his previous film "Prem Pujari" in Calcutta. He was low in spirits because his film had been opposed and some had burnt "Prem Pujari's" posters.Fact|date=February 2007
